Former Rep

This Rep has been part of the program from 11 June 2014 to 02 June 2017

Me and Mozilla

I am a computer science student at University Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris in L2 of computer science. I like compilers, garbage collectors, operating system and low level stuff. :)

Project where I am implicated


I am just a little contributor to Rust but I strongly believe in the potential of this language.

This language provide the possibility to write low level stuff with memory, type, concurrent, safety who it's impossible in C/C++...

Teaching computer science

Because it's important to fight the computer illiteracy, peoples must know how to use a computer!


I also try to be an active contributor for WebMaker as an event organizer for the region of Paris.

Moreover I worked with peoples from Library Without Borders about their Code Travelers Program because it's important to empower peoples to get the ability to make new thing with their computers and not being only consumers.

Relation with locals association and NGO

I try to make bridge between Mozilla and Non Governmental Organisations, local associations, Institution and thing like that because the Mozilla mission is a common goal so it can interest other one!
